Information

The precinct comprises the railway station building, Stationmaster's house and Miners' park. Originally the end of the line of the uncompleted 19th century transcontinental railway system, Pine Creek railway enabled companies to transport machinery and equipment to the minefields easier than had been possible previously.

At the Miners' Park the link between the railway and the mining industry is explained. Mining machinery and technology from mines that are no longer in existence are on display. The park contains information about the mining past of Pine Creek from the early Chinese miners to current gold extraction.

Please note that while entry to the precinct is free, an entry fee applies to the railway station. The Railway Station is open (May to September) for public inspection.

Facilities include car park and toilet. Caters for people with sufficient mobility to climb a few steps but who would benefit from fixtures to aid balance. (This includes people using walking frames and mobility aids) Caters for people who are deaf or have hearing loss. Caters for people who are blind or have vision loss.
